Thrift with me || Autumn Finds

If you’re looking for me, you can find me at the thrift store…

but what’s new?

I’ve been lucking out with some amazing finds lately, and I personally love to see people’s Goodwill treasures, so here are mine…

Form fitting corduroy skirt

I love the texture of this and how classy and slimming it is for a day in my esthetics studio, or dressed up for an event.

$5.99

Tropical vintage skort

With all the functionality of shorts, but the cute and sassy look of a skirt… it’s the best of both worlds. I was drawn to this tropical print and perfect vintage style.

$5.99

Midi button down denim skirt

This one is a bit out of my fashion comfort zone, but I’m excited to style it and bring a Little House on the Prairie feel to my closet.

$5.99

Retro orange blazer

The color of this is the best part, plus the material reminds me of linen. I took out the shoulder pads and now I see myself rocking this to work all the time.

$4.99

Handmade orange planter

Perfectly fitting for my mid century modern bedroom- I can’t wait to put a plant in it!

$4.99

My dream leather work shoes

I have been looking for shoes like this that I can wear to work everyday for MONTHS. The ones I’ve been looking at average $90. And I finally found these perfect babies in my exact size and I couldn’t be happier about it.

$9.99

Gold statement earrings

I’ve always been an earring girl. So when I saw these beautiful funky statement earrings (which I’m thinking are from the 80’s), I couldn’t pass them up. They tie together any outfit.

$2.99

Woven baskets

I immediately imagined putting plants in these two adorable baskets when I saw them… and here they are in all their glory on a floating shelf above my bed. How dang cute are they?!

(Keep your eye out for a post all about my room decor soon)

Large $6.99

Small $2.99

I want to know… do you guys find amazing treasures at the thrift store? Or do you feel like all you find is someone else’s trash? 🤷🏽‍♀️

I hope you enjoyed this little peek into my closet. Thanks for reading… xoxo

Thrifted Jewels// Pt. I

Often times I look down at my outfit that I chose for the day and think to myself “wow, it’s like I’m a walking thrift store advertisement,” because every single component, from my shoes to my hat, is either vintage or second hand.

But hey, the important thing is that I trick people into thinking that I’m trendy and have a unique style, when really, I just don’t like to spend much money on my clothing.

Ha. All jokes aside, I love thrifting not only because of the rad pieces that are just waiting to be discovered, but I really enjoy the process. Although many people find it tedious and sometimes “gross”, I actually like to spend the time sifting through countless racks packed with clothing. And when I happen to come across something that is literally priceless to me, I find myself to be much more elated than if I were to simply go to a “popular” store, grab something off the rack, and spend a crap-load of cash on it.

Thrifting is always a hit or miss, you either find cool things or walk away with nothing. But luckily the other day I found some keepers that warm my little grandma heart.

At first glance, I almost passed this colorful piece of artwork up. But when I gave it a closer look, I fell in love with the message and the artistic style behind the small framed paper. Now it sits front-and-center on my make-shift desk, and every time I sit down to do work, I get to read it and think of these wonderful virtues that everyone should be reminded of. It’s gently telling me to “take each day as it comes, and don’t get ahead of yourself.” dsc_0827

I don’t know if the brand Papaya is popular in any other state than Oregon, but this phone case in the Papaya store is normally around $25 and I got this one for $2. I was pumped.dsc_0836

Ahhh this hat is just too perfect. Unfortunately, it doesn’t fit on my big head, but I couldn’t walk away from it. I am planning on selling it (or maybe just squeezing it onto my head). dsc_0849

And now for the hands down best find of the day.

A vintage Pendleton oversized white button down with the most amazing design on the back. It says “Let’er Buck!” with an adorable cowboy riding a stallion. I just love it. dsc_0856dsc_0863

You might be thinking, “how in the world are you going to style this?”

But don’t worry, I have a vision. I’m going to wear it as a shirt dress with tights and booties and I can’t wait. Want to see a lookbook featuring this shirt? Give this post a like so I know I should make it. dsc_0871dsc_0873dsc_0876dsc_0880dsc_0888

I decided to dress up a little today when my friend and I walked around our small downtown valley while sipping milky matcha tea. hope you enjoy. love all. love Madeline. xoxo

the beginning of my etsy adventure.

today marks the first day my new Etsy shop opened. after weeks of working out the bugs I was finally able to get it up and running, and I can’t tell you how extremely happy it makes me. it would put an even bigger smile on my face if you did me the favor of checking it out, giving your feedback or even looking to purchase any items you find cute. I mostly sell clothing right out of the ’80’s that I would where any day of the week. thank you so much for your support and walking this new journey with me.
